If we saw how much Christ loves us… The Lord does not abandon us, never and no way. From the time He came to the earth through the Theotokos Mary and became God-man, He is with us always. And as Elder Porphyrios – may we have his blessing – used to say it, if we saw how much Christ loves us and what He has done for us, we would go crazy from our joy. We would leave ourselves in His hands, and wouldn’t have any care about anything.
